SH Structures welcomes World War II Veteran

We were extremely honoured to welcome veteran, Ex- Flight Lieutenant RAF VR Roy Hill to our works to see first-hand the sections of the Bomber Command Memorial. 92 year old Roy was a radio operator in Lancaster Bomber PB 765 which was shot down over France in December 1944. Roy was able to chat to various people who were involved in the project and show his appreciation for what we had done. It was, however, a much greater privilege for us to meet Roy and thank him for what he, and the other brave flight crew, did for the country during World War II.

At 22 years old, Roy was a similar age to some of our apprentices, so it was fantastic for them to meet him and something they will remember for a long time.

The 30m high steel spire will be erected by our contracts team on a hill overlooking the City of Lincoln on May 10th. The spire will form the centrepiece of the International Bomber Command Centre which will honour the young men who gave up their lives serving with Bomber Command.
